On Holy Friday the traditional appointment with the most striking procession where all listed companies parade slowly and face covered carrying lanterns, crosses and statues representing the Passion of Our Lord; compagnia dell'OPA carried in the hand the "Dead Christ" accompanied by fire suggestive of torches carried by the compagnia della Misercordia which also has the task of transporting the huge wooden crucifix.

On Easter Sunday the appointment is renewed in a climate decidedly festive with the same parade this time bareheaded and with the compagnia dell'OPA that on this occasion brings the "Risen Christ".

The components start from the Church of Sant'Agostino and then follow along the alleys of the country until Porta Fiorentina where, once released from the walls, proceed along the perimeter of the Public Gardens and then return to the same curch of Sant'Agostino this time through the middle course.
